Expediting Emotional Healing with Shiome Therapy

Shiome therapy was created by Judith Hancox, MSW, LCSW in 1999 as an evolving therapeutic approach, incorporating some of the most expedient, efficient, scientifically based psychotherapeutic healing techniques in existence. Shiome therapy incorporates yoga, meditation, gestalt, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Evolving Thought Field Therapy and Shamanic healing traditions to gently move people into a healthy balance. The synthesis of these techniques has been shown to accelerate the body's natural healing abilities.

  • Yoga: Yoga means “to yoke,” a union of our individual ego, personality, with our Higher Self, Higher Power. Yoga helps support the sometimes-intense processing sessions by helping you maintain safety and awareness with an objective perspective.
  • Gestalt: Gestalt means "whole." Gestalt Therapy creatively guides one to reclaim and unite lost or shattered pieces of the traumatized self, with focused, conscious, awareness.
  • Evolving Thought Field Therapy (EvTFT): EvTFT incorporates the science of Applied Kinesiology (muscle testing for biofeedback) and Energy Psychology. EvTFT rapidly releases bound or trapped emotional energy that disturbs one's nervous system.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): EMDR is a potent therapeutic method with established success in treating post-traumatic stress disorders. EMDR helps release the negative impact of traumatic life experiences locked in the nervous system by ‘jump starting’ the brain’s inherent healing capacity. Bilateral brain stimulation helps integrate both hemispheres—the thinking part with the feeling part. It is similar to the natural processing of the brain during REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, the dream state, but clients are awake and aware during EMDR.
